Can you save Anroburg from the evil mage Thargorim?
Create your party, level up, crawl through mad dungeons and avoid death traps - like you did in the late 80s.

Gates Of Integrity is a humble tribute to the original Bard's Tale 1, released in 1985 for all then-popular homecomputers. I played the Amstrad CPC version and I was instantly sold to the world of computer role playing games. So I decided to give it a try and recreate the Bard's Tale-ish atmosphere in an own game. This was  in 1989. Well, it have been over 30 years but here we are... If you are interested in the different versions I did (but never completed), you might want to take a look here:

The levelling is easier than with the original Bard's Tale, but beware: It is really, really oldschool. You can save your game, but only in the guild. The interface is keyboard-driven as it was back in the 80s. And you might loose quite a few heroes on your first steps into the unknown.
The story is my own, as are all maps and dungeons. You will hear some atmospheric sound tracks from Derek Fiechter while you are playing. Most of the monsters, spells and classes are very AD&D / Bard's Tale-ish to capture the spirit of the original Bard's Tale.

I hope you like it! If you played Bard's Tale (or the Devil Whiskey), you will feel at home instantly.

Tried this out after Fishdog Games shared it on FB. Having a blast! I got pretty lost on the 2nd floor the dungeon last night, and almost just reloaded before I set out.  Came back in the morning, and found my way again. So glad I didn't rage!


Of course, some ease of use improvements would be great, like being able to swap which characters inventory you are looking at without having to exit all the way out.  But fun none the less!

The set pixel size is a little challenging on my Surface Go. I have to hide my taskbar, or I don't see the full height of the screen.

Thank you, Bhelogan!
I looked into the code and implemented your suggestion. You may now switch characters in the char info and inventory screens.
Version 1.01 is released just now. :-)

Enjoying this a lot, and appreciate the update. I noticed in the help file it indicates that Rogues can hide in combat. But, in practice, Monks seem to be the ones who get that ability. Is that intentional?

Thank you, once again. It was a single letter typo in the source code. To prevent spoiling saved games in progress I decided to release v1.03 with both Monks and Rogues being able to hide in shadows.

Any hints on figuring out the number for the 3rd floor in the Gate of Diligence?

Nice progress, Bhelogan! :-)
The numbers to add are hidden in levels 1 to 3. Some are hidden in a very physical sense. Study the spell list. ;-)
Some are so obvious that automap will help you.

Thank you! this is a nice game. Is possible play in fullscreen? I don't like play in a window. 

Thank you, frikiloko!
Unfortunately, this game only runs in windowed mode.

Thank you for sharing! I just joined the rpg group! :-)
